Opposition JLP concerned about escalating crime
Opposition Spokesman on National Security Delroy Chuck has expressed concern about what he calls an escalation in serious crimes, since the start of the year.
Mr. Chuck says the murder figures for this year show a 6 % increase over the same period last year.
Mr. Chuck was speaking at a news conference at the Jamaica Labour Party Headquarters this morning (June 27).
The Opposition Spokesman on National Security says the trend is worrying.
Mr. Chuck adds that there is a growing sense of insecurity in the country as a result in the upward trend in murders.
